12,000 years ago, the first inhabitants arrive on the island of Kythera. A truck full of antiquities is escorted by the police to a port. A museum is under construction. A man asks his great grandfather “why do we dig the earth?”. Parallel stories covered by soil.

The soil we dig up to make roads and build our homes upon, plant our gardens, the soil that gave clay to the potters and painters of antiquity for their art, is the same soil that is the protective shroud of centuries gone by.
